Millman: Whyalla to Clare

We departed Whyalla noon on Tuesday, no planned destination or route once past Port Augusta, just heading towards Clare for a couple of nights. Decided on going thru Horrocks Pass it is a pretty steep climb but the A handled it well 2nd gear about 25mph and temp 180, it is much more scenic drive than down Port Pirie to Clare. Stopped at Willmington to look at the Toy Museum ive never seen so many dinkies, meccano sets, train sets,dolls ,trikes and pedal cars, the owner has 50 Landrovers and 12 Valiants. Left Willmington for Melrose for our stop over, some very interesting accommodation at the hotel will post photos. A leisurely drive yesterday to Clare, met up with a very interesting character who owns two original unrestored but registered Whippets. He took one to China for a rally in 2011 from Beijing to Shanghai, he also has done the Gibb River rd and Arnhem land on fundraising tours – I’ll post photos of Whippets
